Here I'll be making
muzzle velocity measurements and comparing these to the maximum values obtained
from the open loop triggering experiments. A comprehensive series of voltage and
current measurements will be taken so that the energy budget for the coilgun can
be fully characterised. Since it is only possible to measure two transient parameters
in any given experiment (2 channel DSO) I'll need to run a series of variability
tests to ensure that measurements made in different tests can be effectively correlated.
